Ladies and Gentlemen!
Today I got two great knives from GEC. Not the ForumKnife but a #72 Lockback and a #12 Powderhorn Jack.
As you can see, the #72 is made of Ebony wood and the #12 is made of Copperhead Jigged Bone. I wanted a Copperhead Jigged Bone the first I saw it here And I don´t have a GEC in Ebony, so I thought why not?
A qickshot of the the ebony wood - the grain is not good to see, but the wood is great looking!
The Copperhead Jigged Bone is as nice as I imagined. I really love it!
The F&F on both knives is great. Especially the #12 is made near to perfect. No blade play, no gaps or whatever. Centered blades and everything is fitted well together.
The #72 has a little flaw... there´s a gap between the liner and the backspring/lock. When moving the tip of the blade, there´s minor blade play. It´s not as bad as on my #73, but it´s still there. It seems, I have no luck with singleblades GECs.
Til now it doesn´t bother me that much, but it´s not really ok.
Maybe it´s visible on the following two pics
Size comparison to today´s fellow
The centered blades on both knives - the bladeplay on the #72 is not bad, but it might become a problem in the future
Thanks for watching. I´m looking forward hearing your opinions
